Mack Miller adds blinkers after racing against the grain of inside bias last time; potential main speed with aggressive ride.

16 Saturday Appeal(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 2-9-4 Schosberg 2-1

Hudson Miracle bested a next-out winner when a determined maiden victor last out; rates close call. River Boss was pace and trip compromised in last and owns fast late pace and final figures on 'A' game. Life's a Roar is speedy and can prove a tough customer on a soft lead.

7 Cross Gate(L) 120 Maragh 2-7-5 Rodriguez 7-5

Streets of Fire owns a sit-and-pounce style that should be well served in contentious field. Mr Rodriguez owns speed and looms a front-running threat on best efforts. One Smokin Cat makes quick comeback after displaying improved speed last week; very playable in third start of form cycle. Cross Gate hails from the white-hot Rudy Rodriguez barn; right in the thick of this.

16 Signora Sofia(L) 122 No Rider 7-11-5 Sciacca 15-1

Left Uppercut made menacing middle move and flattened last out; weakness of field is selection's strength. Rufus Ruth runs late and should be aided by today's added ground. J Rose Gal owns sprinter's speed and returns to NY-bred ranks; don't ignore. Josie's Prospect wheels back in a hurry and adds blinkers after facing tougher last Saturday; needs scratches to escape AE list.

7 Sky Colors(L) 120 Lopez 9-10-9 Ortiz 12-1

8 Flowing Mane(L) 113 Vargas, Jr 5-3-8 Hinds 6-1

Flowing Mane could play out as the controlling speed in first main track start. Shertzer regressed in last after fast-figured placing in prior; rebound potential. Puget Sound makes peak start of form cycle and hails from David Jacobson barn; very dangerous. Indigene Charm returns from month-long freshener and owns solid numbers on best races.

11 Perfect Dancing(L1) 120 Maragh x-x-x Levine 8-1

Pete's Fleet was a much-improved fifth in last and should have more to give in second start since seven-week layoff. Maybrys Challenge is speedy, drops and moves to dirt; potential controlling front-runner. Electric Currency compiled tight work tab for debut for Mike Hushion; could be the goods.

14 Allie Sweet(L) 118 No Rider 1-1-4 Rodriguez 2-1

First Whippoorwill made sustained rally when a clear-cut winner at the Big M last out; pairs up. Lady's Lunar Luck gets class relief and owns three wins from five starts on Big A sod; big-time player. Sally's Dream delivers strong efforts with machine-like consistency; dangerous. American Kitty exits sprints and should be favorably positioned in big field; don't dismiss.

Sioux tallied swift final fraction when a determined winner in most recent; 71/2-furlong distance suits perfectly. Native Hero visually and numerically impressed when a dominant victor in first start on Big A loam; very dangerous.

16 Go Olivia Go(L) 118 No Rider 8-2-4 Rojas 6-1

Win for Kitten drops two price levels, gets rider upgrade and makes quick return (seven days); rates call if able to scratch into body of the race. Blossom's Trail, another that needs help to escape AE list, was pace and position compromised in last. Belle of the West packs a strong late kick, makes third outing since layoff and fired half-mile bullet since last start; very playable. Concealed displayed newfound speed when a solid third at 42-1 last time; juicy-priced player once again.
